is a 1991 Croatian
film directed by Rajko Grlić
. Based on the novel by Ivan Kušan
, it tells a true story about legendary Slavonian bandit Jovo Stanisavljević Čaruga
During its premiere, Čaruga was described as "the last Yugoslav film", because its theatrical run coincided with Yugoslav break-up and escalation of conflict into the Yugoslav wars. Many believed at the time that it was the last time actors and filmmakers from various republics of former Yugoslavia would ever work together on a film.
Others saw film as an allegoric portrayal of Tito and his era, because film's protagonist (played by Ivo Gregurević) used Communism as a pretext to get rich and enjoy luxurious lifestyle.
